Playing With Colour
Make-up artists usually don’t get the opportunity to use colours outside the traditional palette of neutrals for bridal make-up, but the lovely bride-to-be, Jenny, had a style all her own! From our initial bridal make-up trial, I could tell Jenny’s look would be as outgoing and fun as her personality.
Jenny wanted to incorporate turquoise eyeshadow into her overall look, which makes for a make-up artist’s dream – playing with colour! But of course, shades of blue are always tricky colours to work with (yes, think visions of your mom’s blue eyeshadow). To keep her bridal make-up from looking ‘dated’, subtlety was key – especially since we were playing with such a bold colour!
Get the Look
We focused on a subtle blend of aqua eyeliner on the bottom lashline, which meant the use of waterproof make-up products was imperative. To get the look, I used Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil in Aqua along the outer corner of the bottom lashline as a base. To reinforce the line and keep the look long-lasting, I layered FACE atelier‘s Transforming Gel with a turquoise eyeshadow atop of it. The result was a bright pop of blue that highlighted Jenny’s gorgeous features. Check out artistrhi.com for more from Jenny’s Big Day.
Congrats, Jenny! Thank you for letting me be part of your beautiful Big Day!
